Step 2: Engraving TroLase Foil

Put TroLase Foil into your Trotec laser and cover the rest of the engraving table to maximize the vacuum effect. Start the engraving from the bottom to prevent the dust from settling on the engraved areas. The parameters can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.

During kiss-cutting you cut through only the top layer of the sticker material, while the backing layer remains intact. This allows the stickers to be easily peeled and removed from the backing layer.

Step 3: Cleaning and assembling

Clean the sheet with a damp cloth. Leave the material in the machine and the vacuum activated to make the cleaning process easier.
